There are many reasons without doing anything that our community is attractive to the homeless. For many, it's the same allure that brought many of us are here. It's a great place - a semi-rural, small town type burg set against spectacular mountains.
More so, homeless are lured here by a rapidly growing set of social services, a beautiful park with lax enforcement, resources to earn some income and a wash to hide in. And we have an upcoming homeless festival, complete with illegally posted flyers.
For years, other communities locally and out of town have given the homeless one way tickets to our town. But now, the LA City Council itself is intently looking at S-T to absorb the homeless from Downtown and Hollywood.
Want proof? None other than our former Council Member, Richard Alarcon (yes, THAT Richard Alarcon) said so. And here's the video to prove it.
Special thanks to Wally Wharton for getting us the clip.
